[NTG-context] short filler rule either side of a text

I know it is possible to get a rule to act as a filler either side of, 
say, a chapter head text by using \definefiller with alternative=rule 
and, as explained in an earlier post 
define a left and right version. So, for example, for the left version:


This gives me a rule that extends to the margins. What if I want the 
rule to be, say, 2 cm either side of my centered header text? I tried 
experimenting by replacing left=\zerowidthnobreakspace with 
left=\quads[3] and that did shorten the rule somewhat, but when I did 
the same for the other side, it did not balance correctly. So maybe I 
need to deal with the 'left=' differently to achieve the desired 
result... or try an entirely different method!

Of course, I don't want the rule at the baseline, but raised, as the 
original stackexchange 
example gives. Any clues?
